So what I did was this. I selected my entire model marked seam, unwrapped, went into uv box and packed as png.
Now when selected a color and colored over my vertex paint (seeing how that didn’t render) first showing as nothing but black then and it appears to mixed with the colors of the vertex paint. To me this was ok since i was using different shades of brown.
I thought I was done then it didn’t show up in the render filter.
what am I doing wrong?
